Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget. - G. Randolf

This blog is dedicated to Tamira, one of my truly great friends:)

Ok, remember the rant about packing that I just did? Well, my darling friend volunteered to help me pack. Who volunteers for such a chore, I have no idea, but she really did. She sacrificed her Saturday, came over with aid, advice and lots of good cheer and motivation.

Tamira packs quite methodically, believing that space should never be laid to waste. Each of the boxes where utilized to the max, and there were no air pockets that would increase my shipping fees...(see, I remembered!). She showed me how to properly wrap breakables, and 'cushion' them. Then I learned another fabulous trick of putting stuff in ziploc baggies so if they break or bust, they wouldn't mess up the other stuff in the box. WOOHOO!

Total we packed 23 boxes. I would never have believed that I had that much stuff, but when you count the books, winter clothes, sweaters, puzzles and other sundry items, it really does add up.

After that, we sipped on 'slightly sour' pink lemonade, and ruminated about all that we had done in 4 hours. You know who your great friends are when it's time to pack.

Thank you very much darling!

Actually, I didn't read your blog about having to pack and I'm almost certain I made the offer before you made your blog anyway. =op
